Announcement: LIDAR-Lite V3
Today we’re excited to announce LIDAR-Lite V3, a new class of optical distance measurement sensor that utilizes a single chip signal processing solution along with minimal hardware.This highly configurable sensor can be used as the basic building block for applications where small size, light weight, low power consumption and high performance are important factors, such as in robotics, unmanned vehicle systems, IoT, industrial sensing and more.
Operating from a 5V DC source with a current draw of <100ma while taking acquisitions, LL V3 can take measurements at up to 500 readings per second. Communicating via I2C or PWM to a user supplied micro-controller, it can measure distance and velocity of targets from 0 up to its maximum range of 40 meters with 1 cm resolution and a +/- 2.5cm accuracy under typical operating conditions. LIDAR-Lite is designated as Class 1 laser eye safe during all procedures of operation.
Lightweight, economical and accurate, LL V3 brings the power of laser based optical ranging and proximity sensing to emerging applications that existing optical technologies are unable to support.
Available now, LIDAR-Lite V3 will have a suggested retail price of $149.99.
